Needing such a luxury probably never crossed your mind, but having such a luxury will definitely change the way you take notes If you are anything like me, I prefer taking notes the old school way with pen and paper, but I also like to have electronic versions of my notes as well Today, I’m going to demonstrate the best of both worlds No longer will I need to take the extra step of placing my notes on a scanner or trying to find a free app that does a very bad job of mimicking a scanner The Rocketbook Wave is a combination of a special notebook and a free mobile app
First, you write notes in the notebook using a Pilot Frixion pen Then you use the smartphone app to capture and send your notes to pre-configured cloud services Each page of the Rocketbook Wave contains seven symbols which are the magic buttons behind the Rocketbook’s quick and easy cloud organization You simply assign each icon to the destination of your choice Currently, you can select from Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, OneNote, Evernote, or your email address
When you mark that icon on your page, the Rocketbook app automatically files your notes in the right place It is very important that you follow the one Rocketbook rule when taking notes Be sure that you are using a Pilot Frixion pen You can find these at stores such as Walmart, Target, and Office Depot For a variety of colors, check out Amazon Prime
If you are not using a Pilot Frixion pen, your Pocketbook Wave will no longer reside in the mythical world of unicorns and fairies The Pilot Friction pen supplies the magical ink that will later disappear right before your very eyes Frixion ink turns clear with heat; however, it does not completely evaporate This means that in some lighting, you will see your old notes appear rather faintly like a ghost Fortunately, Frixion pens continue to write perfectly over clear ink
The Rocketbook Wave notebook works indefinitely But keep in mind that much like other reusable items, the number of reuses that you will get varies depending on a number of factors These factors can include your note density, pen type, and pen pressure.
